JOHNSTON, R.I. (AP) - A second teenager has died after a fiery car crash at a Johnston gas station. Two other people were injured.

State police say an 87-year-old woman was trying to make a left turn off Route 6 Tuesday afternoon when her Buick collided with an Audi driven by a 19-year-old man, who was heading straight through the intersection.

Police say the Audi went into the parking lot of a Sunoco gas station. It then struck an unoccupied SUV, which hit a gas pump and burst into flames.

Authorities said 18-year-old Dylan Laurenzo died Wednesday morning. Police previously announced that 18-year-old Taylor Reilly was pronounced dead at a hospital. Both were passengers in the Audi.

The older driver was reported in critical condition Wednesday.

The crash remains under investigation.


This story has been corrected to show the proper spelling of Laurenzo, not Lorenzo.
